    [International Women’s Day] Four things everyone can do to #BeBoldForChange

    Posted by Samantha Tiller-Schenck on Mar 8, 2017 7:21:32 AM

    If you have the chance to walk around Nordic’s home office in Madison and stumble upon our marketing team, you’ll notice an “Everyday’s a Holiday” calendar hanging on our wall. Most mornings, the team gathers around the calendar to see what we plan to celebrate. When looking ahead to March, I noticed that “International Women’s Day” (IWD) wasn’t listed. I channeled my inner Sheryl Sandberg, asked why “Proof Reading Day” took precedence, and sought to understand more about IWD.  

    Tackling women’s issues is a big job. So, IWD recommends that we (men and women alike) focus on gender parity within our own spheres of influence. This year’s campaign, #BeBoldForChange, encourages us to find ways to cultivate an inclusive environment, challenge bias, promote gender-balanced leadership, and value the contributions of men and women equally in our day-to-day lives. (Photo below: Just some of our amazing Nordic women.)

    As women in a male-dominated field, there are small and large actions that will create an impact on our company’s cultures, our professional development, and personal growth:

    CEO Bruce Cerullo shares a few things you might not know about Nordic

    Posted by Bruce Cerullo on Feb 7, 2017 2:11:56 PM

    Three years back, if you had asked the team what Nordic does, most would have said we’re the largest Epic consulting firm on the planet or that we have “the best depth, breadth, and quality in the industry.” Our client partners knew that if they had a talent need, we were the go-to source.

    A little bit about Nordic's take on corporate social responsibility

    Posted by Nordic on Nov 16, 2016 11:35:11 AM

    At Nordic, we place a high value on supporting the communities in which we live and work through volunteerism and charitable giving. Over the past year, we’ve developed a corporate social responsibility committee with the goal of responsible and charitable giving under the focus of preventative health to include the following pillars: hunger, education, and empowerment. In the true spirit of our maxim “Grow. Teach,” we recently hosted a number of events in the home office to raise awareness about Nordic’s culture of philanthropy.

    You’ve got 1,000 questions; we’ve got answers: Nordic’s collective knowledge sharing tool

    Posted by Nordic on Jul 12, 2016 1:25:01 PM

    We’ve all been there. You have a complicated, time sensitive project. Even with your experience, you've never run into this particular problem. The answer isn’t readily available, and you’re not sure where to find the information you need. After listening to clients share their EHR growing pains, Nordic implemented Insight, a collective knowledge management tool for our employees to ask questions and share answers through a secure digital platform. Questions range from “What is a good brand of wall mount arm for computers in exam rooms?” to “What’s the average Beaker install time for an experienced Epic enterprise customer?”

    #NordicGivesBack [4-min. recap]

    Posted by Nordic on May 24, 2016 4:03:17 PM

    Last week over 140 Nordic consultants and home office team members participated in Nordic’s Community Giveback Week. We’re thankful that we had the opportunity to volunteer with 10 organizations across the U.S. and serve a combined 385 hours last week. As one Nordic team member said, "It's fun to take a break from day-to-day work to do something special for others." 

    We kicked off the week with the state of Madison address by United Way of Dane County CEO Renee Moe. Renee shared more insight into the impact we can make in our communities. After her address, we enjoyed lunch catered by Culinary Creations Catering, a food service employer for individuals who have overcome significant life barriers. You can learn more about our time with Renee here.
